Vibrators are a godsend to women – without a partner – who wish to relieve sexual tension. They’re also a handy tool for those who do have a partner, but one who is unable to bring them to orgasm with his own tool. In that case, a bit of DIY is required
It wasn’t always so. In Victorian England, if a woman was sexually frustrated she could trot off to see her local doctor, who would ‘finger’ her until she ‘came’
‘Finger fucking’ a woman to orgasm was apparently the recommended medical treatment of the time for women suffering from hysteria. It was hard work though. And there were so many woman turning up
to be finger fucked suffering from hysteria that the poor doctors developed sore fingers (first recorded instances of (R)epetitive (S)train (I)njury ?). In desperation, they invented a mechanical device to do the job for them and thus was born the vibrator massager.
By an odd coincidence, the number of women presenting to their doctor with ‘hysteria’ declined as the number of women purchasing these ‘massagers’ increased 😉

P.S. ‘Hysteria’ in Victorian England was a condition exclusively confined to women http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_hysteria. Perhaps the thought of the treatment involved – jerking off the patient – was enough to deter doctors from diagnosing male patients as suffering from hysteria ? 😆
